Parque Histórico Guayaquil
Parque Histórico Guayaquil information
Historic Williamsburg meets the zoo at this large sight across the Puente Rafael Mendoza Aviles Bridge, on the east side of Río Daule. The park is divided into three ‘zones’: the Endangered Wildlife Zone, which has 45 species of bird, animal and reptile in a seminatural habitat; the Urban Architecture Zone, which has a restaurant and showcases the development of early-20th-century architecture in Guayaquil; and the Traditions Zone, which focuses on local traditions, with an emphasis on rural customs, crafts and agriculture.
A taxi from the city costs up to $4, or you can take the red-and-white Duran 4/30 bus. It’s easier to catch the bus back to the city from in front of the large mall on the main road about a 200m walk from the park.
